Game 3

All I ask for of teams that I root for in the post-season is that they play like they are burning to win. The Braves did not play like that last night, and the Cubs did. It will hurt me, as it often does, to see yet another highly talented Braves team lay down in the playoffs. If the Cubs pull this out, they’ve earned it and I’m with them all the way. I could swear there were three different hits to right field I thought Sheffield should have been able to get. The boys weren’t hustling, and generally didn’t have that playoff air about them. This is where it gets completely frustrating to me. I complained the other day about the lackadaisical air of the Atlanta fans. Well, the team has it too. Come on, y’all! For christ’s sake, let’s play it like you want to win it!
